Since I closed my weight loss blog the other week - thanks to a stalker - this is going to be where I'd be posting articles.
So, back in early January 2013 I weighed in at 70.3 kg / 155 lbs which was too much for my 5 ft 2 inch (158cm) frame. So I started to lose weight very successfully. May 1st 2013 saw me at 62.1 kg / 136.9 lbs and I was super duper excited.
On Aug 2, 2013 I was at 62 kg / 136.7 lbs. Figured I won't gain back anything, right?
Things started going the wrong way. Grandma's illness took the worst turn and she died in late August, stress at job added to the mix - so I am no longer that relaxed at work and hardly have time to walk during the week - and here I am on Oct 20, 2013 weighing in at 66.3 kg / 146.2 lbs. I am still under the weight I was in early January (4 kg / 8.8 lbs less).
Still, I am above my healthy weight which is around 62.2 kg / 137.1 lbs.
I talked to hubby and decided we should start working out, even if it's just 1/2 h a day. I got a stair stepper at home and it's mechanical so doesn't tell me how many calories I burn or how long I work out for. And I don't have a HRM either cause they are very pricy - seriously ppl where do you find them at a reasonable price and I can actually get them in Europe. I saw one priced US$250 this summer. Yikes.
I am sooooo frustrated. I was at an awesome weight from May to early August but that's when things started going the wrong way. I don't have enough time to cook so I eat not-so-healthy things as well.
I know this is just a phase and I do want to be at healthy weight by my b-day in December but any help...shoot something at me. Please. Any advice. I cannot batch cook though cause we both get bored of eating the same things....and don't exactly have an option to do workout videos at home, either.
